A narrow nook of a place, Farm is the official restaurant of Janice Beaton Fine Cheese, and the 17th Avenue Southwest restaurant shares its homey, wee space with a backroom JBFC specialty fromage counter. The Farm menu is suitably cheesy – its mac and cheese with pork shoulder and house-made pickles is the stuff of comfort-food legend. Additional entrees include pork ribs with fig barbecue sauce, greens and cheddar corn bread, rabbit gnocchi and seared red snapper with wild rice and veggies.
One of this upscale diner’s signature dishes, you know the cheese component is going to be something special when the place features its own Janice Beaton Fine Cheese shop in the back. Served very hot and lightly spicy, the dish can be topped with optional smoked ham hock. Do it!
Farm-fresh ingredients prepared in an open kitchen are the order of every day at this contemporary Canadian restaurant on 17th Avenue Southwest. Lunch features include sandwiches from chicken to Arctic char as well as locally raised beef burgers. Dinners include a very popular mac ‘n’ cheese entree as well as boneless chicken with cauliflower risotto, and for Sunday brunch, try the eggy, cheesy hash or a rich and creamy benny.
